Palermo what a beautiful and historic city located in Sicily! Of cause you need a nice and good located hotel room if you want to be able to full enjoy the beauty of Palermo. And after trying out several budget accommodations in central Palermo I finally came across this little gem with rooms so comfy that it makes you feel right at home! Come and check it out with me!

Location of budget hotel Gallidoro Palermo

Gallidoro is amazingly located right at the start of Via Maqueda which is at the beginning of the “touristy part” and therefore you wont feel like you landed in some “mafia movie”. Central station is conveniently located only 8 walking minutes away from Gallidoro.

Gallidoro’s affordable nightly hotel price

Average of 50 EUR per night for short stays. If you are interested in long-stays just contact them directly! It is a little more that the other budget accommodations like a hostel room, however it’s worth the extra money (50 EUR instead of 20 EUR per night) simply for the comfort, the location and the delicious breakfast.

Gallidoro’s hotel amenities

Featured with a nice breakfast nook and located inside a lovely old building that as been restored to become a Bed & Breakfast. In display are typical Sicilian arched ceilings in the walkway. Perhaps only downfall are the plethora of steps that await you to reach the guesthouse, especially with luggage. BUT the staff always comes down to carry your luggage up.

Delicious Italian continental breakfast in Palermo!

I tried breakfast in many little guesthouses in Italy and as a Westerner I must say it was rather lacking consisting of packed and dry Croissants and a coffee.

Gallidoro however got the “Continental Breakfast” right! Not only do you get asked what type of coffee you like but they also serve deliciously fresh Italian “Cornetto” with an assortment of jams!


Further the offer a little buffet table packed with fruit, yoghurt, cereals, milk, juice, cheese, hams and prosciutto crudo and even WHOLE GRAIN TOAST! Awesome!
